ARP goes round the houses for unique circular project

ARP goes round the houses for unique circular project

ARP has manufactured bespoke version of its Legacy heritage-style cast aluminium guttering for a unique house in Yorkshire. Oaklands, built by Cohesion Construction, is a circular house with an interior core; this unique design presented ARP with a challenge to produce guttering for both the internal and external curved roofline.

Following a full site survey, ARP designed the radiuses guttering as a bespoke one-off within a four-week timeframe. They designed the system from scratch based on ARP's Legacy system, to the exact slate grey colour specified (RAL7015) with a fine finish to add texture. The company produced a special template and bespoke mould for the project and several samples to ensure a perfect fit. This was achieved on the first attempt to within a 2mm tolerance for the full radius, internal and external.

ARP’s Legacy cast aluminium gutters provide the perfect combination of modern manufacturing techniques and materials with a traditional style and durability. Manufactured using traditional castings as an alternative to cast iron, ARP’s Legacy is produced in five gutter designs and many different sizes to replicate traditional case iron profiles, but is actually much lighter, easier and safer to install. During their 40+ year long lifespan, ARP Legacy gutter systems require little or no maintenance.

Despite its modern design, the client nevertheless wanted to achieve a traditional style for the new-build property. Legacy guttering was matched with ARP Colonnade cast collared downpipes, giving the house exterior a traditional design twist whilst retaining its modern aesthetic.

“This has certainly been a very interesting and challenging project, with hardly a straight line or corner on the whole project,” says Cohesion Construction’s MD Giles White. “I have worked with ARP many times as my go-to roofline supplier and I knew that they could rise to the challenge of producing this radiused guttering. They certainly delivered – on time, on budget and right first time – and the project looks spectacular.”
